    ~What will you do this season to Rejuvenate and Renew your spirit?~

    Well, I am going to be moving into a new place with SO and child, YAY! He starts work in June after finishing Med school. YAY! I am going to submit my first novel by end of this month. Lots of things to make me feel better, including giving up soda once I’ve moved. All in all, it should be a nice few months 🙂

      Cass I am SO glad you’re here!
      It sounds like you have so many awesome things happening in your life right now!
      I am SO happy to hear that your first novel is just about done. Your writing ROCKS!

      Also, you are going to be AMAZED at how much better you feel when you give up soda!
      I was a die hard soda addict who gave it up many moons ago.
      Today, I’d just as soon drink battery acid (that’s what it feels like once you get the toxins out!)

      Have an awesome week and hope to tweet with you this weekend (check out the Bloggiesta chat times – I’m planning to be on Friday pm!)

        Aww, thanks! I love that you love my writing, it is nice to hear!

        I have given up soda MANY times, lol. I did feel better but somehow it always sucks me back in. At least I’ve taken to drinking the REAL sugar versions…everything else tastes horrible now. 😀

        I will definitely look it up and be there 🙂 I look forward to tweeting with you as well ^.^

    Hi Joy, I am really happy to stop by your Friendship Friday, I am following you on Bloglovin now. Seems that will be the way to go with Google Reader going away soon. Thanks for hosting today, hope you have a great weekend!! ❤

    Thanks a lot for hosting. I am already following you on Bloglovin’. Have a good weekend.

      You too Judy! I think I am going to start spotlighting a different network each week. Thought I’d start with Bloglovin since it’s getting a HUGE influx of newcomers right now as a result of Google’s decision to shut down Feedburner in June!

      (If you are one of my Feedburner RSS / e-mail subscribers, don’t panic: I will most likely bemoving you over to Feedblitz the first chance I get – I just need a chance to read their book – but in the meantime, if this is new to you – check out Bloglovin – it has a beautiful interface!)

    Thanks for another great Friday hop to come. I added an art therapy project I am not sure I shared before, but thought it was a good process with your Renewal theme. In that vein, I plan on doing a lot more organic, outdoor art projects this Spring, should it actually arrive… and I can not wait.. that will rejuvinate for sure!

      Hi Diane,

      Can’t wait to read your art therapy project! My husband has several business trips planned in the upcoming months (pout). I’ve been thinking that when he goes away, I need to turn those times into Retreat/Renewal times for myself (shhh! don’t tell! lol) and perhaps part of that time will be incorporating some of your projects into it!

      Have a wonderful week. I think in a few minutes I am going to rejuvenate with a nice spring walk!

    Thank you for hosting. I probably did not follow your theme, but here is my post for today! This is for people who like to do their own thing! Aren’t we all like that at times?
    Blessings to you!

      I don’t know what I enjoyed more, Angel, when I stopped by your blog – that delicious blueberry loaf or your lovely scrapbooking page!

  12. I shared two projects. Thought the origami cross represented renewal during this pre-Easter time. The other was an egg bake that is great for an Easter brunch. Thanks for hosting!

  13. Paula J says:

    What I have planned to do for myself this spring is to go back to taking better care of myself, in many ways…

    Happy Almost Friday and thanks for hosting 🙂

    Doing what I need to do to feel the spirit and be in tune with it. I need to be extra vigilant cause life is getting tougher. I need the guidance in giving me the strength to do what I need to do.

    Thank you for hosting! Spending time in the garden always renews and refreshes my spirit. I can’t wait to get back out there. I am also going to try to be more grateful and content. I need to improve there.

    I renewed by getting a new laptop! LOL Thanks for hosting!

  22. Once it actually warms up, we’ll be working like maniacs to clean up the yard and get ready to either sell the house or rent it out so we can move back to Washington State where my parents and siblings are. 🙂
